Princess Kate (aka the Duchess of Cambridge) is Pregnant!
 
From the Official British Monarchy Facebook Page:

Quote:

Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting a baby.

The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Harry and members of both families are delighted with the news.

The Duchess was admitted this afternoon to King Edward VII Hospital in Central London with Hyperemesis Gravidarum. As the pregnancy is in its very early stages, Her Royal Highness is expected to stay in hospital for several days and will require a period of rest thereafter.
And here's an excerpt from the Guardian:

Quote:

St James's Palace announced the news after the duchess was admitted to hospital on Monday afternoon with acute morning sickness.

It is understood that the duchess is not yet 12 weeks. But the fact she has been admitted to hospital, and is likely to stay there for several days, forced the palace into making an announcement earlier than it would have liked.

... The baby will be the third in line to the throne, bumping Prince Harry, the baby's uncle, to fourth place.
I hope that Prince William & Princess Kate have a boy!!

Anyway, congrats to the couple. I'm sure he will make a fine prince one day. Lord knows they already have a few interesting princes's or something.

The monarchy is an antiquated political institution that needs to go the way of the Ancien Regime.

And now all those trashy women's magazines can finally have a truthful cover.

One magazine in Australia has having cover stories about Kate being pregnant for the past 11 months.

i realise i just dont care. nothing about this is interesting.

and before anyone says 'dont post if you got nothing nice to say' i post this as a protest against the sentiment that i must rejoice to this news.

Congrats to them. Interesting that I'm hearing they are 8 weeks pregnant and 8 weeks ago they were in the Solomons.

Well I was in the Solomons 8 weeks ago...

I saw "confirmation" of this on the cover of a magazine at the grocery store yesterday, but dismissed it. Seems like she's always pregnant. But now that we have real confirmation, I hope all is well with her and I hope their first is a girl. My mother thinks she'll have twins.

- Catherine taken to hospital this afternoon with acute morning sickness

- Prince William drove his wife to hospital after she became ill at her parents' home in Bucklebury, Berkshire, and remains with her this evening

- Middletons were told of the pregnancy at the weekend but the Queen didn't know until today

- Royals scrambled to tell Prince Harry who is serving in Afghanistan

- Couple, who have always been open about wanting a family, announce baby 20 months after April 2011 Royal Wedding

- Baby will be born third in line to throne and great grandchild to the Queen
